Amanda’s Blue Swirl Picture Frame is an original way to enjoy the art of marbleized paper in any space. “Marbleized papers have always brought about a sense of exoticism for me,” Amanda explains. “Europeans once called them ‘Turkish papers’ presumably due to a readily available source from Turkey in the 17th and 18th centuries. The fact is that in one form or another, the process of marbleizing spread across cultures from the Middle East to India and China. European bookbinders used these gorgeous swirling papers for centuries as end papers to embellish fine leather-bound books.” Our marbleized paper accessories are marbled by hand in cheerful swirls of bright Lindroth blue to lend each useful item in this unique collection a touch of old-world charm, and a hint of exoticism too! This decorative picture frame is crafted of handmade 100% recycled cotton paper, marbleized by hand, and finished with a graceful wavy edge. A coordinating solid blue border sets off whatever you display inside.
